In Costa Rica, you will raft for 3 to 4 hours on this perfect tropical river, which, thanks to its landscapes, has been declared one of the five best rafting rivers in the world. This is a journey of pure magic, unparalleled beauty, wildlife, filled with fun.

You will go along the borders of the Pacuare River, the Talamanca mountain range, to the home of the Cabecar Indians, where you can see jaguars, monkeys, sloths and an incredible variety of birds, butterflies and reptiles. You can check for these species, and enjoy the raw power of the pounding river, during your relaxing lunch break.

After the rafting, you will take a pleasant, relaxing walk back to San José in the impressive Braulio Carrillo National Park, after an adventure of a lifetime.
